Characteristics: There were lights on the object
A square shape of 16 colored lights observed for 90 minutes through forest trees on Sept 1, 1991.

At around 5pm Sunday, Sept. 1, 1991 I sat down on a log, at about 4500 feet elevation, beside my oldest son with my dinner plate of trout, fried potatoes, beans and bread and looked up, almost due West, across the Klickitat river to a stand of pine trees and saw a square shape consisting of four rows of vertical and four rows of horizonal colored lights behind the trees at an azimuth (sic--angle of elevation) of 20-22 degrees.

With our 8 power glasses we could see black material dividing the panels and a black border framing the entire set of 16 panels, This border appeared to be about the thickness of 1/4 the width of a panel.

The colors were green, blue, yellow and red and did not flash or change color.

Our camp site location was on the north side of the river a few miles above the entry of the Diamond Fork tributary entering the Klickitat, and, where the river turns due West for a short way.

The shape sank slowly out of sight with no side motion and was gone at 6:30 pm.

Sunset was 6:50 pm in the Seattle area that day.

I recall that during the summer of 1991 a lady got Media attention with her claim to be in regular contact with a civilization in the Constellation Orion, and, her contact was now watching off the West coast.

The square shape we saw must have been HUGE and not Earth bound.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness on two occasions, and we found him to be exceptionally objective in his description of the sighting, and seemed to us to be exceptionally credible. PD))
